Edinburgh Airport implements Everbridge platform for aviation incident management

UK-based Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), critical event management and enterprise safety software applications, has announced Edinburgh Airport Ltd has deployed Everbridge´s Critical Event Management (CEM) platform to improve efficiency and streamline communications during emergencies, the company said.

The system will replace and simplify multiple manual processes, speeding up the effectiveness of communication across operations from the emergency services team through to airlines, retail units and local agencies.

Edinburgh Airport Ltd is Scotland´s busiest airport. It accommodates 14.3 million passengers each year and is growing steadily towards 20 million. 227 routes fly to 157 destinations around the world and the airport is worth over £1 billion to the Scottish economy. Like all large airports, Edinburgh´s responsibilities lie not just with passengers and staff but also with the multiple organizations and services that support its day-to-day operations.

During phase one, Edinburgh Airport is using Everbridge to target emergency services, the airlines that are serving the airport, on-site retail outlets, and support agencies including Transport Scotland and Edinburgh City Council, who are involved with resilience planning.

The next stage for the airport will be phase two: Airport Control Futures, which will address technology such as perimeter security and fire alarms, and how these can be integrated into Everbridge.
